Vanessa Hudgens is slated to star in and executive produce a movie called ‘Big Rig’.  A film about a girl named Bertie (Hudgens) taking a striking dramatic turn as a young mother who finds her freedom and herself on the open road as a big rig truck driver. Living in a small town in Tennessee, Bertie is strapped for cash and shouldering most of the responsibility as she and her husband Sonny try to make ends meet for their three unruly young kids. Bertie decides to take matters into her own hands by secretly learning how to drive 18-wheelers and soon hits the open road, tearing across the United States. Bertie is thrilled by her newfound sense of adventure and purpose, and her family life is also improving. But as Bertie makes new friends and racks up the miles, she finds her home life harder to return to, and her tried-and-true relationship with Sonny starts to break down. As these two sides of her life compete for her attention, Bertie must decide where her heart really lies.

Martha Stephens (To the StarsLand Ho!) will direct from a screenplay by Ryan Binaco (To Leslie), with Claude Dal Farra and Brian Keady of BCDF Pictures producing with Kelsey Law. Hudgens also executive produces. Currently in pre-production, the film shoots later this year. Mister Smith Entertainment is launching global sales on the film at the upcoming Cannes Market.
